Donald Trump is doing the Right no favours

I never really thought of America as a foreign country. It was a separate country, but not to me a foreign one, we’ve been through too much, we’re family, joint heirs to a common inheritance of freedom under law. So it is with great distress that as a Right-leaning Libertarian I look to the U.S and see the emergence of one Donald Trump. There was one thing that has truly annoyed me about his rise. It’s not any of his ludicrous comments about Mexicans or Muslims, terrible though they may be. No, it’s the way he portrays himself.

He has likened himself to Reagan. Not totally inaccurate; they’re both ex-TV and ‘outsiders’ in fairness. But here’s the difference; Reagan grasped that you could be anti-establishment without being constantly crass, foul-mouthed and narcissistic. Reagan understood that it was not just simply enough to be angry and complain all the time (although that’s not without some justification, and occasionally it has its uses). You need that little breadth of warmth when you give your message to the people. You need to offer something better than the current system. So far from Trump I’ve heard no credible solution to any of America’s current problems, just a lot of noise about what a problem they are in the first place.

The worst part? He is dragging the Republicans down with him. There’s some wonderful talent on show of the Republican candidates, none more so than Rand Paul, whose strict constitutionalist approach is growing his support. But the problem is the likes of Paul don’t get a look in as Trump continues to be the loudest and most controversial of all the candidates and so he naturally commands the attention of the media, which ironically only adds to his popularity. He is discrediting all the other Republican candidates and solidifying their place as an unelectable force in America. So consequently it is now likely that America will end up electing another Democratic president that is committed to ever increasing its $18 Trillion debt.

Come on cousins, you can do better than this. You deserve better and we expect better.
